It was actually raining when we started this engagement shoot with the beautiful Rachel and her equally gorgeous fiance Ben – but we didn’t let that put us off! Armed with wellies and big smiles, we had a great early morning walk around Ditchling Common – a stunning location with lots of wild woods, just perfect for a romantic shoot. The rain cleared up, leaving this beautiful soft misty light which I love for romantic engagement shoots. And even better when your subjects are as stunning as this couple. I love Rachel and Ben – both were unsure about being photographed, but relaxed so much when they realised how easy it was! I’m photographing their wedding at the end of April at the gorgeous Upwaltham Barns! I can’t wait!
Oooh and a particular highlight to this shoot, which deserves a special mention, is our cream tea at the Ditchling Tea Rooms. Seriously, the scone was bigger than my head. It was enormous. And DELICIOUS! You must go and pay them a visit, it was the cutest Tea Room in the world. In fact I’ve decided all my engagement shoots should end with a great big cake. That is my goal!
